Near Byre is a 10-min walk (2-min drive) to the Michelin starred Lochbay Restaurant and the oldest inn on Skye, The Stein Inn.

We are a married couple who have moved to Waternish after years of dreaming about living on Skye! We love the outdoors and are keen mountaineers. We also love pets and have a lovely gentle dog and 13 sheep and two Kune Kune pigs called Lucy and Lynas, who have bags of personality! We love to meet people from around the world and hear about their culture, customs and lives.
